Very bad sound quality on the pink vinyl. Buy the regular black vinyl if you can

Superb album - I only discovered the band a few days ago but can see why they are getting so much attention. Urgent, intelligent and emotional roller coaster 'punk'. Pink vinyl is gorgeous and dead silent with no clicks or pops. It does sound a little compressed and flat to me - but I'm nt sure if that's the pressing or the general recording

Really surprised how good this album is.
Didn't think they could match the heights of Brutalism again, they've possibly surpassed it?! time will tell.
Solid 5/5
Sound quality of the pink vinyl is excellent also.
